The Grass is Singing - Doris Lessing


A seminal novel of the 20th century, apparently. That's probably why I didn't understand it. A comment on colonialism, racism, feminism, clearly, and the prose is understated and elegant. But for me the bleakness obscured the sense - should it really be necessary to read around it to try to get some context? And to make things worse, I can't help thinking, 'The grass is singing... for me and my gal.'
